    Negaunee, MI July 9, 2016 — Today,  Iron Street in Negaunee was packed with people enjoying the Pioneer Days Parade! There were no shortages of floats, marching groups and exciting sounds in this event. Today was my first Pioneer Days Parade, and now I can’t wait for next year. All of the pride and hard work shown by all of the groups, as well as the excitement and smiles seen from the crowd, made this parade a great addition to the Pioneer Days celebration!

    We at Great Lakes Radio were also very glad to be a part of all the excitement! Walt and Mike from the Sunny Morning Show started our line up in the flashy van and behind them was Joe Duckworth manning the WRUP van. Following behind the WRUP van was Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show with Todd Noordyk as co-captain in a camouflage Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette. Completing our crew was Eric Scott and Lane Dawson in the 103 FXD box truck!

    One of my favorite floats was the MCMCF Wizard of Oz Rainbow Float. The Negaunee High

    School Class Reunion floats were other parade favorites.

    There was also a picnic at Teal Lake following the parade!

    The cost of the Pioneer Days celebration is pretty high, and the Negaunee Irontown Association can always use more help and support to make the Pioneer Days celebration just as great as, if not better than, it has been all these years.
